Colour
Bring vibrant, ethical style to your every day with our colourful ‘Danakil’ scarf.

Skilful artisans in Ethiopia used a traditional loom to weave this scarf from locally cultivated mulberry silk thread and Ethiopian cotton. Hand-dyed using local plants and herbs in bright turquoise, sky blue, and jade green tones, and finished with fringe edging, it brings a touch of fun to any outfit.

This lightweight and soft accessory provides warmth and coverage in the cooler months or while travelling.

Wear your new scarf with pride knowing you have supported Fair Trade business in Ethiopia and women who have suffered from obstetric fistula.
